This WAS the Atari ST version of the game Frontier: Elite 2 by the great man mentioned previously. It was disassembled, OS calls and hardware access removed, and originally run on a stripped down ST emulator (Hatari). Now it is compiled to C or native x86, and run much faster without 68K emulation. Most recently it has been modified to draw stuff with OpenGL at any shiny resolution with 8xAA, etc. A dandy evolution for a crappy old Atari ST game.

It uses the SDL library, and compiles on Windows (mingw) and Linux. Should work on other unixes also although this is untested. I'd like people to test it on big-endian architectures.


I did not create this, I just stumbled upon it recently and thought it should definitely be upped here. Credits go to Tom Morton, and the creators of the original Elite series of games.

I added the optional sound files to the game so it's all ready to play! Tested on Win 7 x64 and it runs wonderfully!

I grew up with Elite on my Commodore 64 and loved it. Hey! Thanks for letting us know that Elite:Dangerous is going to be released. I wasn't even aware they were making a new version of Elite. I am excited!!! :) Cheers!
